We went to one of the picnic shelters (which is near a creek), and he kept talking about how he was afraid I was going to throw him in the creek. He paced and talked for about 20 minutes about nothing at all. It was cold and getting dark, so I told him he'd better get to his point or I was going back to the car to warm up! So he pulled the box out of his pocket. I figured it was a nice pair of earrings or a necklace or something, but I opened it up and there was this gorgeous diamond solitaire!! He didn't ask. He just kind of looked at me like "oh god, don't give it back to me". Like I would have said no.
It was very sweet.
He isn't quite romantic, but he's very sentimental sweet, and thinks a lot about how to go about things.
We are planning on a small ceremony and a HUGE party. My dad and step-mom told us they'd pay for everything, which is AWESOME, since we have no money for a wedding. I know that they will let us do things our way, too.
We just watched The Wedding Crashers a few weeks ago, and my fiance decided that if we could have a party like the ones in that movie, weddings might not be so bad. hehe
